Barking Dog

Mysterious one

in my yard tonight,

can you stop and play?

short break

I’m taking some time off from blogging to refresh the brain cells and work on some projects that have been lieing dormant for a long while.

Thanks for following my blog.  See ya’all soon!

Spring around the corner

Every morning the sun rises a bit earlier and sets a little later.   I look at the mess that is my yard and gardens and I want to grab a rake or a shovel or anything to be outside making it prettier.   Unfortunately – or fortunately some things just take time and patience.  The bulbs I planted last fall are still resting, hopefully as restless as I am.  The birds are beginning to trickle back to the feeders (the European Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) and English House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) have been here all winter.)

So for now, I will dream of multi-colored tulips, sunshine yellow daffodils and work on my weaving.

A walk in the woods

Walking in the woods,

I wonder which way to go,

but I am not lost.

Patterns

We look for patterns

in behaviors – good or bad.

Some are just pretty.

Are you going to the parade?

What parade?

February is going to March!

White orchids bring smiles.
